Cosmetic Surgery Institute provides breast lift surgery in Palm Desert for women who want to restore their breasts to a perkier, more upright position after pregnancy, aging, or weight loss. Our talented surgeons meticulously plan each breast lift surgery to meet the individual needs of our patients while also respecting their physical anatomy. This approach ensures that the breasts are sculpted for a result that is soft and subtle, yet noticeably improved.

Women visit our practice for a breast lift from Palm Springs, Riverside, and beyond. Request a complimentary consultation online or call 760-837-0364 to discuss your options.

Our Approach

Our surgeons believe that a good breast lift should look realistic, maintain functionality of the breasts, and provide long-lasting results. Cosmetic Surgery Institute accomplishes this goal in a variety of ways.

First, to create a tear-drop shape, our surgeons reconstruct the breast crease with internal stitching so that the breast maintains projection and a natural slope. This technique also prevents the breast from "bottoming out" (distorting in shape) in the long-term. In addition, our surgeons pay special attention to small details during surgery in order to create delicate enhancements. One such area of focus is the shaping of the nipple-areola complex. Using very methodical surgical techniques, our surgeons craft a natural shape without sacrificing nipple sensation.

Your Choices

How can I increase the fullness of my breasts?

While some of our breast lift patients want to improve their breast shape only, many others also want to enhance the size of their breasts. In this case, a breast lift is often combined with breast augmentation to create a look that is fuller and perkier. These procedures can be performed simultaneously for your convenience.


Where will my scars be located?

Your surgeon will determine the proper scar placement based on individual factors such as the amount of breast sag and volume loss present. However, most procedures are performed using a combination of three approaches: a circular incision around the areola, a vertical incision from the areola to the breast crease, and a horizontal incision in the breast crease.


I am considering a tummy tuck. Can a breast lift be performed simultaneously?

Absolutely. Many of our patients who have breast surgery also choose a body contouring procedure such as liposuction or tummy tuck for a dramatic transformation. These procedures can be performed at the same time to minimize the risk of complications from a second surgery.

What to Expect

Breast lift surgery is most often performed under general anesthesia, or in some cases, local anesthesia with sedation. Your surgeon will make the appropriate incisions and then lift and reshape the breast tissue to a more youthful position. If a breast augmentation is also being performed, your surgeon will place the implants beneath the chest muscle before tightening the skin envelop around the newly placed implant.

Dressings or bandages may be applied after your procedure to help reduce swelling and support your new breast shape. During your recovery, some soreness and swelling is to be expected but should resolve within a few days or weeks. Most women can return to work within 1 to 2 weeks.

Enhancing Your Look

Breast augmentation in Palm Desert and Riverside County is often chosen in addition to breast lift surgery to increase the fullness of the breasts. Women who want to improve their body shape can also choose a tummy tuck or liposuction for overall benefits. Cosmetic Surgery Institute frequently suggests nonsurgical procedures such as laser skin resurfacing as a "finishing touch" to reduce scarring on the breasts.
